What is this fungus?

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Welcome to Uk Fungi :)

Please take a moment to read HELP US TO HELP YOU TO IDENTIFY YOUR FINDS

We appreciate you might not be able to provide all these details, but the more the better chance we have of reaching an ID.Particularly, we need to see clear photos of the top of the cap, plus of the gills and stem.

Best wishes

At this time of year we could do with an addition to the intro message:
"Please ensure your fungus is not honey fungus before posting" ;)
"You must know it's right, the spore is on the wind tonight"
